Danish paper cord is the material used to weave typical seats and backs found in many Danish, Scandinavian, and Mid Century Modern furniture designs. The cord is a very strong 3-ply fibre / fiber product. Møller and Wegner seats often use Danish cord in a wrapping or rush weaving style..

 


Single Rail Danish Cord Seats is when the weaving is one sided and only wraps around a single rung on all sides. From the underside you will see the cord is attached by specialty hook nails.


 

These Danish cord chairs are single sided however they use staples to attach the cord to the chair frame. There is an extra charge for these chairs to remove the staples and install Danish hook nails where possible.


 

Double Danish Cord has an extra step in the weaving process where the weaving wraps around two rungs. Photo courtesy of @Louchemilieu


 

Some mid-century modern designs do not use Danish hook nails to attach the Danish cord to the chair.


 

Some chairs are woven in the rush pattern using Danish cord material. The rushing pattern Danish Cord mimics traditional rushing with the Danish Cord material. Often these chairs have extensive slots that the Danish Cord must be fed through which makes weaving these seats more labour intensive.

How can I get my woven chair repaired? Who can repair my caned chair?

My husband David and I are currently in Calgary, Alberta renovating our house to rent so that we can travel this beautiful country in our RV. Once we hit the road full-time we will become Caning Canada Seat Weaving While RVing. We will offer our woven chair repair services while RVing local to the area we are exploring in Canada. Check out my website for more inforation https://caningcanada.com/" target="_blank">https://caningcanada.com/.


I am currently offering woven chair repair from Calgary, Alberta.

Our house is located in Calgary, Alberta so we are able to provide woven chair repair here until we are done our house renovations and ready to hit the road likely September 2020.


If you live outside of the Calgary area don't worry. Most chair seats and backs can be removed and sent to Caning Canada for repair by Canada Post. Contact me for further details. https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping" target="_blank">https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping

We are working hard towards truly becoming Caning Canada. We were hoping to be on the road full time in our RV in the summer or fall of 2019 to provide our seat weaving along the Trans Canada and in the Halifax area.


Glass half full (I live in a Country with great health care and have an amazing doctor) or half empty (we are behind schedule and some of that stuff was very painful) I had four eye procedures in 2019 for my Glaucoma.


COVID 19 - We are self isolating Glass half full (we should get more done on our renovations as we already have the materials we need) glass half empty (not sure what the rental market will be like in September and there are no words for COVID 19).


Starting this October we will winter in Langley, BC from mid October until Mid April. We will do this regardless of whether or not we managed to hit the road full-time as we have a RV site there. Send me a message if you would like to get on the booking list.


We are thinking of spending about a month in the Toronto area September 2020 and a week or two in either Saskatoon or Regina on our way back from Toronto to Langley September or October 2020. This will totally depend on the above glass half empty (not sure what the rental market will be like in September and hopefully COVID 19 is history).


If you would like to get on the booking list send me some photos of your woven chair that requires repair to Caningcanada@gmail.com and I will provide an estimate and contact you when we are in your area.


Thank you and have an awesome day,
